This spring’s been so cold that trees are 3 weeks late to bloom, and farmers already have started to fight for financial compensation from government. Even though their “lost harvest” doesn’t exist yet. Reasonable people. Everybody knows government is slow. But now it happened, at last. Trees are blooming.
This is Liquitex watercolor (crimson, emerald green, yellow) and white gouache on tinted watercolor paper. Yes, I have found tinted watercolor paper lately! It can be bought in several shades; blue, gray, yellow… This one is yellow. The well-lit upper surface of the flower in top left corner, this is true color of the paper. No paint here.
